On May 13, College Avenue Friends Church hosted the Friends University Concert Choir as they shared their spring tour concert with us. Our cooking club had the pleasure of cooking and serving the evening meal for this amazing group of students and staff from Wichita, Kansas. Be sure to check out our photos from this event!
The CAF Cooks shared a farewell “afternoon tea” with Heather Nelson. We will miss her greatly, but are excited for the new opportunities that await her in the culinary arts field. Heather has recently embarked on a chef internship on Mackinac Island, Michigan near Huron Great Lake. And, for all you bloggers, follow Heather’s new adventure on her blog @ http://nelsonfoodjourneys.blogspot.com/
The CAF Cooking Club celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by sharing favorite potato dishes and making corned beef with cabbage and carrots.
This week the ladies cooking club enjoyed homemade soups and bread. We made kolache and banket, including a gluten-free version. I have been reflecting on how God uses food in our lives to minister to each other.
“Food is a centerpiece of life. We plan meals, gather ingredients and cook up a storm. We set the table and gather the family. We invite friends and neighbors to join us for dessert. We salivate at the prospect of dining at a fine restaurant. We savor every bite of our favorite dish. But have you ever thought of food as part of your mission in life?
Jesus pursued His mission through food. He miraculously fed multitudes by multiplying bread and fish. He described Himself as the Bread of Life. Early church members ate together in homes and those who had food shared with those who had none.”
–Mark Kelly, Food, A centerpiece of life and missions, Americas Stories
The CAF church ladies cooking club would like to congratulate the Tower family (James, Liz, & Sophie) on the birth of Greta Elise, born January 29. Liz has been a wonderful inspiration in getting this group together!
